It’s less than a week since a popular site claimed that Uganda’s popular comedian Anne Kansiime had been arrested in Heathrow for possessing 2kg of Cocaine. According to the site, Kansiime had hidden the cocaine in two bags that were carrying coffee.
The news were found to be a name-tainting fallacy whose main aim was to use the comedian’s big name to drive traffic into the site.
Well, the guys are at it again and this time round they’ve targeted Tanzania’s top cream Diamond Platinumz. The latest claims involving the singer are just the same as those ones levelled against Kansiime. In fact, what the writers did was substituting the name “Anne kansiime” with “Diamond Platinumz”.
Bearing in mind that the war against drugs has been so fierce in Tanzania in the recent past, the dragging of Diamond’s name that had also being wrongfully linked to Makonda’s list really misled readers.
